  (BBSRC DTP) Exploring the developing microbiome in new-born babies
  Dr S Cruickshank, Prof A McBain, Dr C Knight
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The gut microbiome contains a large diverse community of microorganisms with our bacteria being best understood. These bacteria play crucial roles for our health such as aiding in the digestion of food, production of key vitamins and metabolites and programming out immune system.
  (BBSRC DTP) Integrative statistical inference methods for eukaryotic gene regulation with applications to embryonic stem cell differentiation
  Dr I Iqbal, Prof M Rattray, Prof A Sharrocks
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Embryonic stem cells (ESCs) can differentiate into different cell types through intermediary cell states and deeper understanding of the regulatory control underlying these differentiation stages is a very important topic in the study of mammalian development (Yang et al., 2014 & 2019).
  (BBSRC DTP) Stress reactivity and social loss: the effects of adverse childhood experiences on neurobiology throughout the lifespan
  Dr N Muhlert, Prof R Elliott
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are living in an ageing population. Roughly one in five people in the UK is aged over 65. As people live longer there is an increasing need to discover factors that promote healthy ageing.
  (BBSRC DTP) The evolution and development of mutualistic cooperation in nonhuman primates and humans
  Dr K Jensen, Dr S Shulltz, Dr E Fe-Rodriguez, Dr T Smith
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

One of the most perplexing problems in biology and psychology is human cooperation. How can coordination and prosocial acts such as helping exist in the face of free-riding and cheating? One solution involves mutualistic interactions.
  (BBSRC DTP) The role of clock dysfunction in obesity-related inflammation and insulin resistance
  Dr D Bechtold, Dr S Cruickshank, Dr I Iqbal
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Obesity is one of the biggest challenges to public health in the UK and across much of the world. The major threat is in obesity-related metabolic disturbances, which drive insulin resistance, type-2 diabetes, and cardiovascular disease.
  (BBSRC DTP) The role of TARGET OF RAPAMYCIN in nutrition sensing and plantlet development in KalanchoĆ«
  Dr M Kim, Dr G Johnson
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

How a cell determines its fate is a fundamental question in Biology. A differentiated somatic plant cell can be triggered to regain its pluripotency.
  (BBSRC DTP) Using markers of gene evolutionary age to identify function within gene regulatory networks related to embryo implantation
  Prof D Brison, Dr A Stevens, Dr Peter Ruane, Prof M Westwood
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Successful implantation relies upon synchrony between a competent blastocyst and receptive endometrium. Molecular networks mediating these events at implantation are not well understood in humans.
  Advancing Methodology for Clinical Prediction
  Dr M Sperrin, Dr G P Martin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Clinical prediction models (CPMs) take what we know about a person and predict the probability of subsequent outcomes using a regression model or algorithm [1].
  An investigation of psychological and clinical factors associated with the development of chronic or persistent pain in children and young people with inflammatory and non-inflammatory musculoskeletal conditions.
  Dr L Cordingley, Prof W Thomson, Dr R Lee, Dr J McDonagh
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA) is an inflammatory arthritis presenting in children and young people. Pain is one of the main features of JIA and it is often described as one of the most burdensome yet invisible symptoms of this long-term condition.
  Breast Cancer Omics and Modelling
  Dr C Francavilla, Prof R Breitling
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background and goals. Breast cancer is the major cause of death among women and 90% of deaths are caused by incurable metastasis.
